‘ere it is!
First things first! Meet the JackRabbit. Pattern from Cottage Garden Samplings stitched with the called for threads – except for the flower, I substituted Forbidden Fiber Cos Galaxy on 16 ct Earthen by Picture this Plus.
the last 150 stitches took the longest – you see all those tiny purple rosettes? four purple with one stitch of white in the center. Wash, rinse, repeat more than 26 times..
After taking time this afternoon to see CODEX (link here to the information on this international book fair). Last year didn’t happen – so this every two years event may well now be on even years. George & Miriam had a wonderful time. Angel also found it interesting. I wandered around, talked to a few of those displaying everything from handmade paper to hand bound art books to ….. you get the idea. Me? As pretty as some of the items were – I am just not the kind of person who wants something on my shelf or table that needs to be handled literally with gloves.
The four of us hand dinner at Saul’s before heading home. This is the first time I have had the experience of using a QR code reader to order and pay for our selections which were then delivered by the wait staff.
Gwen turned 12 today. Quite old for a golden retriever. Posed in her new backyard I know that she got some special treat to eat.
And, finally, I was able to put more stitches into Aries (the third Zodiac Girl) from Nora Corbett
I added to the lower portion, stuffed in some more browns – so far this has been all tans and browns except for the Light Effects – E436 which is actually kind of a brown. You can see a bit of pink/mauve/violet which is Caron Watterlillies 138 – Mulberry. I am close to 40$ of the stitching complete so hopefully I can finish this up by the end of the week.
